This year, the Arthritis Research UK Centre for Epidemiology is organising the inaugural Manchester Digital Epidemiology Summer School. During this exciting 3-day course, participants will learn all about how to capture and use digital health data to support high-quality epidemiological research.

The programme covers opportunities, challenges and methods across a variety of data types: from data in electronic health records to data collected through smartphones and wearable devices. An internationally renowned and multidisciplinary faculty will deliver interactive seminars on cutting-edge methods for collecting and analysing digital data in the context of epidemiological studies. They will use real-life examples to demonstrate these methods in action.

The summer school is intended for clinical epidemiologists, health informaticians, health data scientists, and clinicians with an interest in epidemiology and/or data science. Delegates from academic, industry and other backgrounds are welcome.

The event will take place in The Studio. Situated at the heart of Manchester’s vibrant Northern Quarter, it is ideally situated to explore the city in the evenings.
